Safelite, Connecticut Attorney General Reach Settlement over Anti-Steering Law

Safelite Group, Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen and Thomas Leonardi, state insurance commissioner, have “agreed in principle on the major terms of a settlement and have begun preparing definitive documents memorializing the agreement,” the parties’ attorneys have reported to the U.S. District Court of Connecticut.

“The parties will continue to work on the definitive documents and expect to be in a position to file them within the coming weeks,” attorneys note.
